About this listing
This is our smallest room. It's a double bedroom, located on the ground floor, with our normal, vast set of double cedar doors, gilded and painted, and leading onto the central courtyard, which is open to the sky in the summer, and covered and heated in the winter.
The room has a comfortable double bed with a wrought iron frame, a hand made Rbati carpet, and that's about it. Thick walls keep the medina and summer heat at bay, and there's a majestically high, cedar wood ceiling. There is modern air conditioning and heating.
The room has a private, en suite shower room with shower, wc, and hand basin, finished in dramatic black tadelekt.
We part own a Moroccan Tourist Transport company and are happy to provide quotes to take you on into the Atlas, the Sahara, the Rif, Marrakech and Essaouira. Rates start at 120 euros per day for an air conditioned 4x4/SUV, fuel, and an English speaking driver/guide.
We try not to make any rules... but we would prefer it if you didn't smoke in the bedrooms.
Please note that while everything from a banquet to a snack is available, and breakfast is included, the kitchen is not available for guests use.
As the house surrounds a courtyard, please respect other guests need to sleep and avoid loud noise late at night. If you have the house to yourself and there are no other guests or family there, party as late as you like.
The description was accurate and also reviews! Everything was great, but the bathroom was too dark. We had reserved a driver to pick us up from the airport, somehow he forgot, but Mark got us a new driver driver right away and it was for free! Thank you!
Fes was amazing experience, full lovely city, people, the riad was great, clean, and perfect service.
mohamed was amazing, helped me with all my questions and thanks to a unique expeiencia lived, thank you very much and recommend this riad 200%
Dar Rbab was charming, comfortable, and conveniently located. There's not much else I can ask for! Muhammed, who received us, was very gracious and helpful in booking us dinner and a guided tour of Fes, which without our guide Abdul we would not have been able to navigate smoothly. I did not personally meet Mark, but he was very responsive to any questions I had. A big thank you to Mark, Muhammed, and Abdul for a wonderful time in Fes!
Très jolie maison.
On regrette juste la présence de cafards, le manager a eu la gentillesse de nous changer de chambre mais le problème était le même dans la seconde chambre.
I didn't meet Mark personally but he was very helpful in planning my trip and answering my questions. Instead, I was welcomed by his friend S'Mohamed. He was very hospitable and friendly, answering all my questions about the city and medina. He made lots and lots of tea, which was very good. For the room itself, it's a comfy bed, but the bathroom is poorly designed and the water doesn't drain well from the shower. The room was also poorly lit, making it difficult to see what I was doing. Thank you for hosting me S'Mohammed.
Mark was a gracious and informative host. When we arrived he provided us with a map and even recommended an app that we could download to help us navigate around the Medina of Fes. He also recommended a place for dinner that had a wonderful atmosphere.
When we arrived we were given mint tea and in the morning were served a lovely traditional Moroccan breakfast (even though it was Ramadan!). Our only problem was getting through the front door as it was a little stiff. Mark was kind enough to bump us up to the bedroom upstairs as there was no one in it, but we found this bedroom's bathroom to have a dungeon like atmosphere. Nonetheless, the gesture was appreciated and we would recommend travellers to stop by for a relaxing and comfortable stay.

About the Host, Mark
I've been in Morocco since 1999. I run a small specialist travel agency and regularly lead trips through the Sahara and the Atlas mountains.
I'm British, and speak English, French and the local Arabic dialect.
I adore travel, food, and culture. Dar Rbab was a family home to myself, my wife, who's Moroccan, and our two daughters and we hope our guests enjoy this beautiful old house as much as we do.
